Tactical Thermal Imaging: Enhancing Fireground Strategies & Tactics
Date & Time
Thursday, October 10, 2019, 3:15 PM - 4:45 PM
This class will enhance fireground commanders and the fire officer's perspective on how to be more efficient, prevent rapid fire growth, direct their streams, and improve search and rescue efforts. The thermal imaging camera in the hands of a properly trained and fundamentally sound firefighter equates to seeing the fireground and the changing environment in a new perspective. In this course, firefighters will learn to properly understand thermal severity, the key attributes of thermal imaging and its limitations, and then how to apply this knowledge on the fireground.
